Great experience! I love the environment that pushes me to the be the best version of myself academically, spiritually, and mentally. Looking back to my freshmen year, I can see how much I have grown. I have become more involved in my environment, I have more confidence, and I have grown in my faith. When this school is ranked #1, I can see why!

Notre Dame Preparatory provides students with elite preparatory education, offering high academic programs such as the International Bachelorette Program and Advanced Placement. It also offers opportunities for students to learn a second language and nothing better than the two most spoken languages in the world: Chinese and Spanish. NDPMA follows the Marist Catholic congregation. Students are full of extracurricular opportunities; performing arts, sports, community service and many others. Faculty members are friendly, understanding but most importantly qualified. NDPA has a warm, friendly and highly academic as well as recreative environment, essential for elite preparatory education.
The teachers at Notre Dame Prep are very professional and committed to working with their students. They dress professionally and treat the kids with respect and expect them to work hard and challenge themselves. They are very responsive to students' needs. If a student emails a teacher, he gets a quick response back. They are willing to be there early or stay late to help students. Couldn't ask for better teachers!
